  5. clutch problems 00' 9-5 aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Yesterday I was driving around and my clutch started feeling weird. The car was still shifting fine even though the clutch felt 'empty'. About 10 minutes afterwards I found that I couldn't shift at all. There is little action from the clutch, just seems like it's not engaging all the way. I...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi Everyone, I am having trouble with my clutch on a 2003 9-3. Bled the system and found little air bubbles continuously flowing in the hydraulic fluid. I suspect I have a leak in the system... duh! My question is this: How do you remove the delivery pipe from the slave cylinder? The manual...
  7. Slave Cylinder Trouble

    C900 Workshop
    I installed a new slave cylinder and clutch kit in a 1985 900 Turbo. Just as pressure restored to the clutch system, the o-ring seal around the piston sleeve of the slave cylinder failed. I replaced the seal and again it failed however this time it was pushed out and in between the sleeve and...
  8. floppy clutch

    C900 Workshop
    I just purchased a 1987 900 Turbo convertible, my first Saab. The engine runs great, a little clunky on the suspension. The clutch pedal drops to the floor board with no effort and springs right back up. I bled the clutch and worked great for 60 miles, I did it again and it ran for about 6...

    Hey everyone, I have a 2002 Saab 9-3 SE 5 speed manual. Of the course of maybe 2 months or so the car would make a weird hissing sound when started. The sound would last for about a minute or so before dying down. The sound would also go away at times when the clutch or the brake has been...
  10. 2001 Viggen clutch troubles

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I was driving down the road yesterday, and left a stop light. At that point, I couldn't shift into any gear. Rolling to the side of the road, I could force the shifter into reverse (no forward gears), and hold the car with the brakes. As soon as you lift off the brakes, it would roll backwards...
  11. Slave Cylinder issue on a 2007 9-3SS Aer0

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I believe the slave cylinder went on my 9-3SS Aero, 2.8L V6 today. The car has 93K miles on it. I am aware this is internal. Does anyone happen to know a rough estimate of repair on this? I dont' believe I'll be able to tackle this one myself given the complexity. This is a 6-spd manual...

  13. Clutch knocking???

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi, I have a 55 reg 9-5 and have noticed a knocking when I begin to release the clutch to pull off. If I am sat at traffic light, or when I first start the car up, I have the car in gear and my foot on the clutch - at this point there is no noise if my clutch is flat to the floor. However, as I...
